Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City
is an awesome place. Most of the residents are not Mormons -- there are a lot of non-Mormons here. I meet people every month who originally planned on being here for only a few days and end up extending their stay for several weeks. Salt Lake City is a very friendly town to Mormons and non-Mormons. I'll give you an example. The other day I met two young travelers from England -- they were dressed like punks.

I was in
area September 2004 hiking in Canyonlands and Arches National Park. What a wonderful place to enjoy the great outdoors, in many ways. Now I'm planning a trip for June 2009 for more hiking, rafting, maybe some biking this time, and who knows what else!

from the north on 191.
is a town that seems to be rebeling against the Mormon state it's stuck in.
